Practical Diploma Private Investigator



Our institute has been providing the theoretical training for Private Investigators for more than 10 years. During this training, students are trained in accordance with the exam requirements of the SVPB. However, we noticed a great need for practical knowledge after students graduate and internships are very hard to find. This now means that private investigators must mainly acquire their knowledge in practice by means of trial and error.


The aim of the Post-MBO Private Investigator training program is to expand the practical knowledge and skills required for practicing the Private Investigator profession.


This modular training consists of the following four practical modules, which can be followed in any order:

This combined learning path will be eligible for the STAP budget

For whom is this training developed?

This Post-MBO training was initially developed for students with a diploma Private Investigator or Special Investigation Officer, but employees of municipalities, insurers, banks or other researchers who can benefit from the training can also participate.


This training is experienced by our students as very applicable and practical. All the more so because the theory is alternated during the lessons with the practical practice of the taught material. The learned methodology can therefore be applied in the daily practice of the student directly.
